Ruth Gerson Band w/special guests Vic Martin and The Shanks
Hailed as “An Underground Songwriting Master!” by the San Francisco Chronicle and one of the "Top 25 Women to Watch" by Yahoo Music, Gerson has “a huge, flawless voice and every word is welded to the beat!” (The Village Voice). Gerson’s original songs run from "tender endearments to a bluesy, impassioned growl.” - The NY Times.

Gerson has appeared on "The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "Extra" (NBC), PBS, Showtime, HBO and Lifetime television. She has released seven albums and recorded with Grammy Award winning producers Rick Chertoff (Cyndi Lauper, Joan Osborne, Sophie B. Hawkins) and Jim Scott (Wilco, Tedeschi Trucks, Citizen Cope). Gerson has opened for Dave Matthews Band, the Indigo Girls, Alison Krauss and many more.
The Shanks Band
The Shanks Band
The Shanks are a premier classic rock cover band in the San Francisco Bay Area. For the past 15 years, we have played a variety of venues from opening acts for big concerts, outdoor festivals, as well as private and corporate events.

The Shanks have a rich music heritage that dates back many years. Members of the band have been in touring bands and professional troupes. As The Shanks, we have been honored as winners, and as runner-up, of the KFOX 98.5 "Last Band Standing" competition. This competition seeks to identify the best cover bands in the SF Bay area.

The Shanks name was derived from members of the band meeting on a golf course, of all places. In Rock n’ Roll as in golf, things sometimes don’t go as planned, thus prompting the name as a reference to a misdirected golf shot.

We thoroughly enjoy entertaining the crowd and, for us, it is all about our audience having a blast while we play songs from Van Halen, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, ZZ Top, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Santana, Bad Company, The Pretenders, Queen, Journey, Free, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Grace Potter and Clapton just to name a few.
